“great rooms at good prices”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

we stayed here for 4 nights after we became too annoyed of having sand everywhere in our beach hut :)
the rooms are really nice, very clean, equipped with tv, ac, fridge and they all have a little balcony. its a bit more expensive than some of the better beach huts and not directly at the sea, but the standard is quite high and you get quite good value for money. staff is also quite friendly and helpful. recommendable.

I stayed at Hotel Roundcube Palolem for 3 nights in a standard room booked by Makemytrip.com.

Pros
1.Located very near to the beach and in the market.

Cons -
1. Dog roams the corridor.
2. As soon as we saw the room, we said we didn't like it and would like to change the room. however, the one member of the staff said "room aapko pasand nahi aya hai to apka problem hai" (It is your problem if you did not like the room)
3. The female staff is discourteous and will roll their eyes at your most basic request.
4. There is no ventilation in the room and the bathroom so it stinks unless you leave the A/C on all the time. There is an extremely dirty window but hordes of mosquitoes fly inside the room so I had to keep it closed. There's no balcony or even an open area to dry wet clothes and leaving them in the room added to the stink.
5. Exposed wiring to the bathroom shower and live current in the shower head (lack of earthing maybe?)
6. The door to the room has a complicated door lock. We closed it accidentally and the staff did not have spare keys to open the lock. They called the owner who came and searched for keys all over the place and finally had to hammer the doorjamb to open it. (The cleaning lady told us that this has happened multiple times in the past). Same thing happened with another family staying in a standard room across us. and they had a train to catch soon and were locked out of the room. Somebody from the staff said "Room aapne lock kiya hai to aapka problem hai". Their A/C did not work the entire night.

Verdict - Don't book the standard room! and don't let Makemytrip.com book a standard room at this hotel. The room is nothing like shown in the pictures on the website. There is no tea/coffee maker, safety lockers and hair dryer - as advertized on the website and everywhere else.

My friend and I were at Roundcude from 31st Jan 2014 to 3rd Feb 2014. The hotel is located minutes away from the beach and admist the market. Location is super. The guy who looks after the place, Kundan .. (i guess thats what his name was)... was very warm and helpful. Our flight was scheduled at 1500 hrs so he even allowed a delayed check out and also arranged for a cab. The rooms are very clean and well maintained washrooms are attached to every room. The house keeping staff can clean your room on request. I was only dissappointed with a couple of things.
1. There is only one quilt provided in a double bed room which made it difficult to sleep as it was fairly cold. the pillows too very flat. I had to remover the bed cover and use it for warmth
2. The women at the reception, as they kept gigling and laughing throughout the check in proceure and talking to each other in the local language, which i personally felt was abrupt.
Overall though it was a good experience and would love to try thier beach cottages on my next visit

Room Tip: Ask for the front room if you ike some noise and do not like back yards. the rooms at the back side...

I stayed at Roundcube for 10 days over the Christmas holiday with a friend.
We don't like bugs & wanted air con & therefore decided against staying in a beach hut so we booked Roundcube.
We were a little apprehensive before arriving but things could not have gone better for us here. Firstly, Cundam & the management team are so friendly & welcoming & will help in any way necessary. There is a travel centre downstairs so it was great to book travel arrangements & we felt safe in the building.
Our room was large & clean with hot water & air con. If u dot like noise just request a room at the back as rooms at the front are on the street & very noisy.
There is a restaurant on site which is handy if u are too hungover to go out for food & also there is a lovely cafe just next door on the left called Crunch.
The beach is under 5 min walk & all your shopping wants are right outside the building!
We had a great stay & would definitely return to Roundcube!

When you take a beach hut in Goa, you want cleanliness, good service, a mosquito net and a comfy bed, a veranda for reading and some aesthetics...Laughing Buddah, just off the beach in Palolem has it all at very good prices...u walk out to the beach ion 2 minutes and have access to a nice bar with a great bartender...
